Pondering Life - Poem by Heather Wilkins

As I ponder life without
I cannot comprehend
the picture.
Without you, tomorrow
would not exist.

A shard forever lost
wandering the streets
of life
forever alone.

    Sometimes a shard breaks away from us and the loss is irreparable pushing us to despondency. But let me here hope that every cloud has its silver lining. Thanks for sharing it on PH. (Report) Reply

    You've captured how so many people must feel when they lose a close companion. It would be lovely to hear of the shard noticing light reflecting off a similarly lonely shard, and each looking through the other to once again take pleasure in seeing the world. (Report) Reply
